about this item
This book draws on the stories of female educators and young Muslim women to explore issues of identity, justice, and education. Situated against a backdrop of unprecedented Islamophobia and new articulations of ‘whitelash,’ this book draws on case study research conducted over a ten-year period and provides insight into the diverse worlds of young Muslim women from education and community contexts in Australia and England. Keddie discusses the ways in which these young women find spaces of agency and empowerment within these contexts and how their passionate and committed educators support them in this endeavour. Useful for researchers and educators who are concerned about Islamophobia and its devastating impacts on Muslim women and girls, this book positions responsibility for changing the oppressions of Islamophobia and gendered Islamophobia with all of us. As such change begins with education, the original stories on supporting and educating young Muslim women contribute to this change process.
